Jay Leno probably allowed the most exposure and promo for Friday Night Lights in one two minute spoof than NBC has done in the last two seasons. In a segment where Jay introduces several ideas NBC had for a possible replacement program for him (which included spoofs of Fox’s Human Target and MTV’s Jersey Shore), he first introduces a drama from the creators of Friday Night Lights. Familiar characters, faux-Connie Britton, inspirational Coach Taylor speeches… it was all there. Probably foreign to most, it was a funny and fun parody of FNL.
The real Friday Night Lights is wrapping up its 4th season run on DirecTV with its final two episodes of the season, while NBC airs Season 4 beginning April 30th.
